AQUITANIA: 1914 - Original travel agency tin portrait - Excellent condition

Product Description

Cunard Line:  Magnificent!  A 33" by 43" tin agency portrait of the RMS AQUITANIA from around the time of her maiden voyage in 1914.  Most tin signs are as beat up and rusty as a Vermont pickup (I once had a LUSITANIA tin sign with a bullet hole!) but this one shines as nice as Grandpa's Caddy.

The artist is American maritime painter A.F. Bishop (1855-1927) who was known for his misty-rosy backgrounds as found in this image.  The AQUITANIA is confidentially steaming toward America while in the foreground Cunard's very first ship, the BRITANNIA of 1840, wallows in in the swells and likely will be swamped by the passing wake.  Tin agency portraits were mostly abandoned after WW1 making surviving examples from the early 20th century very rare.  

Excellent condition - the nicest I've ever seen.
